Amazing gingerbread fudge shaped like tiny gingerbread men. This fudge recipe has become my favourite of all time. It is bursting with flavour!
Course: Dessert
Servings: 16 to 20 pieces
Author: Kim Beaulieu of Cravings of a Lunatic
Ingredients
  • cups light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • optional: allspice I'm not a big fan but you can use it
Instructions
  1. Combine the brown sugar, evaporated milk, salt and corn syrup in a medium size saucepan. Cook the mixture over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Stir occasionally.
  2. Once the sugar is dissolved bring the mixture to a boil. Allow it to bubble up for a couple of minutes, but do not scorch it. Now reduce to a soft boil by reducing the heat to a medium-low heat. Let it bubble for few minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add butter to the pan, but do NOT stir yet.
  4. Let the butter rest int he mixture without stirring until a candy thermometer reaches 110 degrees. Once it reaches that temperature you can remove the saucepan from the heat.
  5. Stir in vanilla and spices. Mix by hand with a wooden spoon.
  6. Beat the fudge with a wooden spoon until it loses it's gloss, but not so much that it hardens yet. You want it a bit pliable to pour into silicone gingerbread mold.
  7. Pour into the silicone mold carefully. It's okay if the men are imperfect. Aren't all men? *holiday giggles*
  8. Pop you mold in the fridge until the fudge sets up. It should be in there at least an hour, up to about 4 hours.
  9. Remove the men from the pan. Place on a platter, or start biting their heads off right away.
  10. Serve with a big old gingerbread loving smile!
